the optdep binfmt-support should probably be changed to binfmt-qemu-static, which uses the correct binfmt config syntax & integrates with systemd-binfmt just fine

ah thanks, so it should probably be removed as an optional dependency?

Does anyone know what happened to the binfmt-support package?

@Synchronicity: Could you point me to the debian package you are refering to? I cannot find it. Thank you.

@ajs124: This package will be updated whenever Debian will release the new package. And as of renaming it to "-bin", feel free to do it in your _own_ system whenever you build it. It is a free world (at least it is here).

Why is this not marked as "-bin" if it is in fact a binary package and not compiled from sources.

Or rather, why is this a binary package in the first place?

Detecting ppc binaries is broken. The magic and mask used for qemu-ppc in this package requires that the 8th byte of the ELF header (e_ident[EI_OSABI]) be 0x00. But sometimes it is different.

It seems this was already addressed in the Debian package, which uses a mask of 0xfc instead of 0xff for that byte.

Can the magics and masks for all the binfmts in this package be updated to match the Debian package?

Source is 404ed, current Debian package is

All you need to do is start/enable binfmt-support systemd service, which executes "/usr/bin/update-binfmts --enable", and you are all set up.

The "update-binfmts --importdir /usr/share/binfmts/ --import" command is for converting from the format normally under /usr/share/binfmts/ to the "right" format which goes under /usr/lib/binfmts.
